Neeru Bajwa is one of the most prominent Punjabi actresses but not many know that before entering the Punjabi industry, she tried her luck in the TV industry as well as Bollywood.
It was in 1998 when Neeru Bajwa made her Bollywood debut with Dev Anand directorial Main Solah Baras Ki and her last noticeable film in B-Town was Prince.
The actress whose latest Punjabi film Shadaa hit the Box Office today, made a big revelation recently and it will shock many of her fans. Neeru Bajwa during a recent promotional interview revealed that she had a bad experience during the meeting for a Hindi film. When asked why she didn’t try to push her luck further in Bollywood, she told IANS, “Well, without taking any name, I just want to say that I had a really indecent experience during a meeting for a Hindi film. I was told that, ‘This is what you have to do to make it here’. It left me shaken, uncomfortable and I was put off.”
However, she clarified that the whole industry doesn’t work in that way, “I am not saying that is how the industry works. I am saying that I was one of the unfortunate actresses who had encountered a terrifying experience. Since then, I did not try my luck in Bollywood, and I never will. I am comfortable in my space in Punjabi cinema.”
Talking about her latest film Shadaa’s pan-India release, Neeru said: “I think it also depends on the actors in the film. As for ‘Shadaa‘, we are releasing the film for the Mumbai audience especially, because of Diljit. Now that he has strong followers among the Hindi audience, we know that this film will have a greater reach.”
Neeru Bajwa is highly popular in Punjabi film industry and delivered blockbusters like Jatt & Juliet, Sardaar Ji and Jatt & Juliet 2.
